What is size XO fashion ? OK, it is possible you have never heard of size XO. It is also possible that size XO does not exist or never has existed. Well, the fact of the matter is that I am fairly sure size XO does exist. I was on facebook last night and on the Fashion Bug page someone was asking why Fashion Bug charged more for size XO then they did for size XL.

Is it possible that the world currently has too many fashion blogs? Obviously I understand that fashion is the most interesting subject matter in the universe, but why does everyone wish to blog about it.
